To enable the record stylus to follow the grooves of the record and pick up
sound (vibrations), it is necessary to apply a constant pressure (stylus
pressure) to the record from the stylus tip. A suitable stylus pressure value
is specified for each cartridge. If the stylus pressure is higher or lower than
the specified value, not only will the record playback sound be distorted
and the stylus jump, but the record stylus may wear out faster and the
record may become damaged. Therefore, make sure to adjust the stylus
pressure to the suitable value.
